From the Inside Flap

If you have a heart problem or a family history of heart trouble, you know how important it is to follow a heart-friendly diet—but it's also a great idea for anyone who would like to have a healthier lifestyle. The good news is that changing meal habits doesn't have to mean sacrificing convenience, flavor or all of your favorite foods. Thanks to Betty Crocker Healthy Heart Cookbook, eating well has never been easier or tastier.

Written in partnership with one of America's most respected cardiologists and a nutritionist from the Bell Institute of Health & Nutrition, this complete resource is packed with over 140 tempting recipes plus information and advice that will do your heart—and your family—good.

Foolproof and fully tested, the recipes are low in saturated fat and cholesterol, but high in fiber and flavor. You'll find irresistible choices for every meal of the day, every day of the week and every part of the menu. From hearty breakfasts and quick dinners to easy appetizers and smart snacks and breads, there's no stinting, even when it comes to dessert!

Recipes include detailed nutrition information, including calories, fat and saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, fiber and protein content. Carbohydrate Exchanges and Carbohydrate Choices are also provided to help maximize menu options and dietary control for those with diabetes.

Everything about Betty Crocker Healthy Heart Cookbook is geared to make life simple, both in and out of the kitchen. That's why a week's worth of complete menus is included to help you get started right away. And with the handy Pantry Planner guide, you'll always have heart-smart foods on hand, even in a pinch.

Throughout the book, you'll find real-life tips and encouragement from people who are living with—or seeking to prevent—heart disease. There is also straightforward advice from cardiologist Dr. Roger Blumenthal and Bell Institute nutritionist Juli Hermanson on everything from exercise and stress reduction to low-fat cooking methods and meatless meal suggestions. Looking for information on heart disease risk factors and testing? It's all explained clearly and concisely, complete with a useful glossary of key medical and nutrition terminology for quick reference.

So why not make a delicious change for you and your family? Follow your heart and enjoy satisfying meals with Betty Crocker Healthy Heart Cookbook.

I am 52 years old my husband recently had a triple by-pass thus forcing us to change many bad food habits. Since the name Betty Crocker is enough to tell the consumer that it is a tried and true product I was very excited to see a healthy style cook book. Without hesitation I ordered it. I liked it so well I took it to my neighbor to look at. She then also purchased one. I have tried many recipes and love them all so far. This cookbook will be in my household for years to come and will someday look like my grandmother's old Betty Crocker cookbook.

I got this book about a year and a half ago, and although it's not always the one I'm cooking from, a lot of my favorite and healthy recipies have come from it. Some of the ingredients can be a little tough to find, and there are a few recipes that need a little extra spicing up, but overall I've been extremely happy with everything I've made from it! The healthy eating and tips in the front of the book are also very helpful when trying to know what to feed your family to keep them eating right. It's like a mini class in nutrition :)

I was recently hospitalized for congestive heart failure and was told to watch the sodium in my diet. I love to cook and bake and Betty Crocker is a name I know well, so I decided to give this book a try. The recipes are good, and I like that they have pictures; but was disappointed to see how high the sodium count was for most of the recipes.

With family issues of need for lower fat/lower sugar diet, this cookbook offers easy and interesting recipes. I have tried several of the main dish recipes already and they have all been hits. Plus, one can figure out how to apply ideas in these recipes to others to modify them to be healthier. Excellent value!

Fabulous color photos and attractive foods. Sodium content in some recipes is not within the 1500 mg or less per day for some persons. A good starting point for some one, but I would suggest asking a nutrition specialist as well.
